This study describes John Archibald Wheeler's career as a mentor of physicists, how research philosophies and standards were passed through Wheeler by his mentors and transmitted to Wheeler's own students. This study also introduces a method of quantifing a given mentor's efficacy by examing the scientific productivity and significance of research published by that mentor. Topics: John Archibald Wheeler, JA Wheeler, Mentoring, physics history, research schools, mentoring efficacy

The book traces the history of ideas in the conceptual development of Quantum Mechanics.The opening chapter talks about how in the 1960s a group of scientists in Berkeley began an ambitious project to document the experiences of people who were still alive at that time and were part of the Quantum revolution. This group included eminent historian and philosopher of science Thomas Kuhn and John Archibald Wheeler. Over the next three years this group did over 150 interviews with the remaining...
